Hi everyone,

it's been an awesome day weather wise and hubby and I got out in the morning with the dogs for our 3 mile walk. Hubby's right ankle is giving him a lot of pain and it is swollen so I will see what his doctor says when we go there tomorrow.

I think he will need to eliminate the walking for about a week at least to get the swelling down.

I am anxiously awaiting news from my daughter to let me know how my granddaughter's appointment went today. She will not be having her baby at the McMaster Hospital in Hamilton which deals with high risk pregnancies. The ultrasounds on the baby's heart shows no abnormality of yet but they will continue to monitor the baby's heart growth through ultrasound now for the rest of her pregnancy. WE are waiting to hear what the sex of the baby is. My granddaughter was waiting for the bay's father to get home from work and they were going to open a sealed envelope together which reveals the sex of the baby. After that my granddaughter will call my daughter and let her know.

Jeri, I am so sorry to hear you are feeling poorly. I do hope the prednisone kicks in for you today.

Joy, I will just bet you had a great day with your GGS. Looks like you have a little cleaning partner by his photo.

Well the sun is still out so I am going to take off and get out for another power walk. The rain curtailed us for a few days and I am taking full advantage of the dry weather today.

Hope everyone is having a great day too.

Good morning. Second day in a row of no exercise for me. My lungs are still trying to calm down after the last asthma attack, so I still have a lot of coughing. Plus, now I'm on 60mg prednisone daily, and it kept me awake most of the night. I'm hoping the prednisone kicks in for full effect today while I'm at work, and the coughing finally stops. I'm taking my workout clothes, just in case. I'll stop by the gym after work if I feel better. My mother got to the point she couldn't even sit outside for 15 minutes without going into respiratory distress. I feel like I'm heading that same direction. I have spent the last ten years trying to avoid her health issues. It's why I do what I do. I don't want to die at the age of 67 with one leg, a pacemaker and failed kidneys. So far I've inherited her autoimmune illnesses, her eye issues, and now the breathing. It's distressing. I usually don't post when I feel stressed like this. Hopefully by this afternoon I'll feel better -- even though I'm starting to get mean and emotional from the prednisone. I can handle mean and emotional for a few days. I just want to breathe without coughing.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Hi ladies
Good to see everyone enjoying their lives and some decent weather right now.
Had a wonderful walk down the beach yesterday and yes the hip complained a bit but I carried on at a gentler pace and was glad I did; I saw so many familiar faces I hadn't seen for a while and ended up having catch-ups with all of them.
When I got home DH said I'd been so long he was thinking of sending out a search party emoticon

Got some indoor chores to get done today then I'll get out for another walk later.

Hello everyone. Finally got some sun today. It's been a long stretch without. Waking up to blue skies makes life so much more enjoyable. Into the home stretch as far as school is concerned. Only 4 more days remaining. The senior exercise group will also stop for the two months of summer. I always say I'll continue on my own but then I never do.
Have a great week.

Hello everyone, what a beautiful summer day it is. Not too hot with the temperature at 68F. It is perfect weather for walking the dogs comfortably.

I have been busy reading for the past 4 weeks and I am on my 5th book now that is the last of a trilogy of books by Sherryl Woods. Good old fashioned romance stories without any smut or cursing. I have enjoyed the other two which is the first time I have read books by this author. She is very good. The other books I read before these ones were by Debbie McComber who I appreciate reading. My favorite author is Dean Koontz however because I enjoy his thriller type mysteries.

Nice to see that everyone has had a good weekend and enjoying the same weather I am getting. I send best wished for a wonderful week ahead.

What a beautiful, full Sunday we had. My son and his family arrived here at 9:00 a.m. for a few minutes to pick up our trailer to haul his quads to their camping spot for Canada Day weekend, then I went to church for 10:30. After that we went to Calgary for grandson's 6th birthday party, then off to meet friends to watch the simulcast racing and a later dinner. After that we went to their place for refreshments. Wonderful, busy day.

A bit later getting out of bed this morning so I haven't got any time to spare other than to say I am pleased to see that everyone had a great weekend. Let's all enjoy this day for whatever it may bring, heat, rain, wind or whatever.

Good Morning All, We are having beautiful unseasonably cool days. Nice to have the house open this morning. JERI I couldn't agree more, I've got a lot of bleacher time around me and often cheered for the kids as well as the team. A great play is a great play! Wonderful, relaxing day yesterday; getting back in gear today. Make it great everyone!

Good morning. It's a beautiful, cool day, and the fair is in town. What a great week for the county fair! Yesterday we spent the day at the ballpark for Little League tournament games. Our grandson's team won their first game and lost their second game. The loss was to the first place team, so it was expected. However, it's double elimination, so they will face them again tomorrow night. Our team has consistently been #2 to their #1. In a small town like ours, we know all the kids. One of the kids on the other team hit a home run with bases loaded, and after they all ran in, I hollered, "Great hit, Ethan!!" My granddaughter asked me whose side I was on. Haha. I told her I like Ethan, and he made a great hit! He deserved clapping and cheering! I don't care which team he's on. Life is good, whether or not you win a game.

Hi Gals
Jeri good to see you, hope you enjoyed the match.
Joy we had a light shower about 5pm and it was over in five minutes, we need more.
Susan your granddaughter did a beautiful thing for you both. What a moment to treasure,

Howdy do to everyone else, must split, want to get a walk in early this morning before it gets to hot and humid.

Hi Ladies,

wanted to say hello and goodnight at the same time as my day has been so full I didn't have time to post until now.
I hope everyone has had a great weekend.

My granddaughters recital was simply awesome last night and she did 2 solo songs that were a tribute to my late son Ryan. tears flowed easily but more that that, PRIDE shone brightly between her parents and my husband, myself and her other grandmother who attended with us.

Sending best wishes out for a great week ahead.

Hi gals. We went to the tore to get Chris some yogurt and wound up driving about 30 miles looking for some decent real estate. Got the yogurt!
It is 92 on our patio right now so I am inside with the shades drawn, watching the Mariners on tv.
Have a good Sunday.

Morning everyone

Seems we are all busy enjoying our summer days, coming, going and doing. We've never had ants in our house but I the odd one crawling across the floor in our living room. I think one of those little cans of whatever it is will get the job done or I at least hope so!!

Have to get going and put my crackfiller on so I get to church on time.

Have a great day everyone.

Good Morning All! Echoing JERI, beautiful day here! Seventies and sunny, doesn't get much better. Worked long and hard in the yard yesterday, there will always be more to do. But, today I'm taking it easy and going to jazz with friends this afternoon.
Susan, wonderful photo of your granddaughter! I know what determination and dedication it takes to reach that skill level. Dancers are remarkable artists and athletes! It's like they can fly!
Caz, we got our rain! Made work much easier yesterday but the weeds are growing like mad too. I've got a wild morning glory threatening to smother my roses. Terrible to battle. Tomatoes are looking good and I ate my first cherry tomato yesterday, right off the vine! Yum!
Have a great day everyone, life is good!

Good morning, everyone!! It's a great Sunday in Kentucky. The weather is amazing!!! The remnants of TS Cindy blew through here night before last and had about half our town under water. Fortunately, it receded quickly, but I imagine some homes are suffering from it.

Today is a ballpark day. Baseball tournament for the oldest grandson. He will play two games today. I'm sure their team will be #2 in the tournament. They have never beaten the #1 team, and with double elimination, I can't imagine they would beat them twice during the tournament. But #2 is good, and they are a great bunch of boys.

We are off to the ballpark now. Have a great day!

Hi everyone,
today hubby and I are off to Waterloo to watch our granddaughter in her last dance recital before she goes off to college to further her studies in dance and theatre arts.
Meagan is extremely talented and we are very proud of her accomplishments. Below is a photo of her during a modelling stint that she did. Just look at the height of her jump as well as the pose which is so striking.........


I can't hardly wait to see this production as she has only gotten more advanced and better with the time that has developed her skills.
I wish everyone a great day.

Good Morning All, Really slept well last night after a busy week. Had at least 5" of rain yesterday but it was still a good day. Hope to get out and do some major weeding in the big garden this afternoon. Jazz at the winery tomorrow. Weather permitting. Be well everyone!

Hi all. Another day out and about. It is really heating up here. There's lots of tourists in our town now and it makes getting around harder than usual. CAZ probably has the same issue.
Mayie, it sounds like you are feeling more chipper and you are being more active.
Everyone get out and have a good weekend.

Rain continues unabated. Went to clean the church a bit early this week having forgotten that Thursdays are gardening nights. Surprise!! More donated plants were in abundance so I was able to fill up some of the many bare spots in my plot. Cutworms. Rabbits. Kids. All are really hard on the garden especially since my plot is on the outside edge where the neighborhood kids do all their running. The soil is very poor in spite of all I've tried to do to improve it. Of course the rain was unable to hold off so another gardener and myself QUICKLY dug holes and planted some of the offerings. Eggplant . . . a new one for me. Peppers. A couple tomato plants. Cabbage. Beets. Has anyone ever heard of white beets? We're really not sure what we're planting as there are few informational stickers. It'll be a surprise.

Heading downtown shortly to work my 3 hour volunteer shift at the Bike To Work Day Celebration. If it continues to pour like it is it won't be much fun slinging beer in the dampness.
How did I ever get assigned that crew? Oh yes, I didn't show up for the meeting.

Anyway ladies, hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Afternoon Ladies,

I went to my moms this morning as she had an eye appointment. The macular degeneration in her right eye has worsened and she now has to undergo getting needles in her eye for the next 3 months to prevent her from losing the sight entirely.
The summer will be busy taking her to her appointments but all worth it to prevent blindness.

We have had an abundance of rain all day but there is a lull for the moment. Hoping to get out for a run for 2 miles before doing some strength training when I get back.
If it rains I will run indoors but loving the outdoors is more inviting.

Hope everyone is having a great day.

Hello everyone,

my apologies for being MIA or not communicating as much. I am still going through some grievous days but I am also still trying to move forward. It has not been 3 months yet since our son passed away so I guess this is why it is taking me more time.
I guess there is no set time for grief to go away I just know that this one has been taking it's toll on me.

Please no pity because I am not looking for it at all. I need smiles and laughter to keep me moving forward and I know that you all must understand my absence at times. With Brian and I living without anyone else in the house it has opened more time to think about our loss. We are both working on new things to do together and I know that in time it will get easier.

I do send my best wishes out to everyone and wish you a fantastic weekend ahead,

Hi everyone

Would anyone like to trade some coolness for some heat?? My garden is growing, slowly, but it is growing despite the cutworm infestation which has now passed. Now it's the gophers and a partridge who hangs out in the raspberry patch. Can't find her nest but have read it is a dip in the ground, covered with grass so no wonder I can't find it!! Oh well, happy nesting Momma Partridge.

It is cool and overcast today with a cold breeze. The warmest places in our yard are the front of the house, around the fire pit and my garden, only because of the shelters of trees or fences from the north winds.

Tomorrow is a new day. In the meantime I am going to enjoy this da ybecause once it's over, ITS OVER!!

So happy the adoption has happened Judy.

Love the pic of GGS Joy. First, I thought those were balloons in the pic but then I realized they were bubbles. Bubbles are such fun.

Mayie, I have not been to the venue you mentioned, the Forks. Been to the Summer Festival a couple of times and sure enjoyed the various food booths!! Of course, doesn't that just figure LOL.

Hi Patti, Cat, Caz, Susan - Have a good day everyone.

Well, again, the time has passed quickly and I've missed posting for too long! Yes, the adoption took place last week and we are so pleased with those 2 little girls! Have been so busy that my exercise was put on the back burner, but felt good to get in a good walk yesterday. Today is a rainy one, so guess I'll have to talk myself into doing an exercise video after work today. On the way to Fargo last week for the adoption, we got a piece of granite thrown up into my windshield, so it's back to the body shop for my Jeep! Thank goodness we have 100% coverage on glass. That grandson of yours, Joy, is such a little cutie! You do well to be able to keep up with him, but I'm sure you are both good for each other!

Two days of sunshine followed by ugly rain and thunderstorms. Events had to be cancelled although Aboriginal Day is continuing with a concert this evening down at The Forks (Verna will be familiar with that venue). Did not feel like joining the masses so had a quiet evening at home.

Hi gals

Joy, I smiled when I saw that GGS said "No more pictures grandma" He is no longer a baby for sure now, he is now voicing his opinion! Such a sweet little guy.

Caz, good idea, stay safe in the heat, no overworking not even on free leckie day!!!

Cat, I hope you find a house that you like and can swing the finances to own it.

Take it easy in the heat everyone. We are comfortably warm and I am enjoying it. Busy trying to get rid of the gophers these days. AND there is a partridge nesting in my raspberry patch. I'm not happy about that, Firstly I can't spot the nest because they do a great job of hiding it and secondly, I had partridges 2 years ago in my garden and had to put up a great fight for my peas!!! My raspberry plants are loaded with berries, I wonder if she scoped them out too!!!

Have a fun day everybody.
